Sent: 22 October 2012 03:34 There's quite a burgeoning body of work on religion and sexuality in British history. Essays by Sue Morgan and Joy Dixon in Morgan and deVries' recent collection, Women, Gender and Religious Cultures in Britain, 1800-1940 (Routledge, 2010) are excellent. Sue Morgan's previous published work on Ellice Hopkins is also great. Harry Cock's chapter on religion and sexuality in The Modern History of Sexuality edited by H.G. Cocks and Matt Houlbrook, (Houndsmills, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2006), provides an excellent overview. The debate about the relationship between sex and secularisation surrounding Callum Brown's Death of Christian Britain (2001) would be useful, pedagogically. My own work on sexual politics in the Church of England and broader Anglican Communion might be of interest. See, in particular, my articles: The Stained Glass Closet: Celibacy and Homosexuality in the Church of England to 1955,' Journal of the History of Sexuality, 20/1 (2011): 132-52; and 'The Missionaries' Position: Polygamy and Divorce in the Anglican Communion, 1888-1988,' Journal of Religious History, 35/3 (2011): 393-408; and my forthcoming book: Sexual Politics in the Church of England, 1957-1957 (OUP, December 2012). In addition to Mark Jordan's work, in the American context I can highly recommend Dagmar Herzog's, Sex in Crisis: The New Sexual Revolution and the Future of American Politics (Philadelphia: Basic Books, 2008). best, Tim Dr Timothy Jones Lecturer in History, Co-Director, Centre for Gender Studies in Wales University of Glamorgan http://staff.glam.ac.uk/users/1287-twjones
